BERNARD (Tristan) (1866-1947)
Autograph manuscript signed, title and signature on 1st page. (s.l.n.d.) 24 p. 1/2 in-fol. Numerous erasures and corrections. Short story entitled "En Casque et Sabre": the young student brigadier Simon tells with a certain humour about his beginnings in the barracks, especially during the horseback exercise which "was the big trouble of my life as a rider" and yet he loved horses very much before entering the cavalry. He became friends with Aubin who took Marie as his mistress. The trio seemed very close and spent their free time together, but Aubin robbed the army to help Marie. A brigadier is unjustly accused. Simon realizes then that his friend does not want to denounce himself. Disillusioned by the lies and the loss of their friendship, Simon sacrifices himself by denouncing himself as the culprit of the theft.
